The European Space Agency (ESA) ExoMar's Trace Gas Orbiter, launched in 2016, just sent some spectacular images of the Mars surface.
The orbiter is equipped to take pictures of the Mars surface in brilliant 3D. 19659003]
The above image may look like a kind of hairy structure, but it is actually a false color image of hundreds of tracks or thousands of ponds – small martin towers – in the Terra Sabaea region of Mars.
The picture below shows Columbus Crater on the Mars Southern Hemisphere – as NASA discovered that sulfate particles contain hydrogenated minerals.
Another great shot: a picture of NASA's InSight lander hammering away on the Mars surface earlier this month. This is the first time a European orbiter has taken a picture of InSight ̵
InSight's heat shield, protective shields can also be seen as small dots.

A stereoscopic image shows more animal strips, in blue, on the edge of a massive crater. Throw a pair of basic 3D glasses to appreciate the full effect.
The following pictures show the edge of Burrough's crater approximately 120 miles northwest of Mars northern polar ice caps. Some of the northernmost mounds are assumed to consist entirely of "almost pure water ice".
